The very next article in the magazine was about the RW Swift FR5, and in all the pics of the aircraft not a single panel line could be seen! It made the review a total waste of magazine space.

Especially in 1/72 scale. I was once told, "stand 72 feet away from the real thing and what can you see ?"

This is a reasonable, logical thought.  It's a variant of my little sister's idea that most pictures/models/crafts are "20 foot items".  If you don't look too closely you get the best view.

If this is the little sister who terrorised who pupils, then I'm not going to argue  :angel: ;) ;D
